hum...

Biochemistry is the process of analyze biology sample using mainly chemistry techniques. this is an analyze processus.
Biotechnology is harder to explain, this is the processus of using technology to produce in the agriculture and others I think...here you have a definition:

Biomedical and medical?
Medical in linked to the medicine... but I cant really explain the difference...
someone else please?

It'll depend on the place you're taking the course.

Hi I'm doing a Biomedical Science Degree.

I would say Biomedical is more the biochemistry and looking at the body in detail as oppose to the superficial details medical students have to know. Medical students have to know basically everything about the body and how its affected in disease. Biomedical scientists know very detailed info to the chemical level. Thats my take on it anyway.

Hope it makes sense! :? :)

Quite often you will find two courses to be extremely similar, and in fact are merely a means for an establishment to accomodate more students...

I think Biochemistry is analyze any organism on chemistry...

however,Biomedical like analyze about human.Eg: urea or ****? for determine the people infected on disease.

This i think im not sure of it.

Biochemistry the class just focus on the chemistry aspects of living systems. All organisms share very similar systems, so dividing them up is pointless.
